The Method Man graphic novel comes out July 23rd from Grand Central Publishing and for our friend, artist Sanford Greene, it marks the next step in the evolution of his career. Fresh off of DC's Wonder Girl mini-series, he sat down with us and talked about his latest effort and the whole experience of working on it.
We met Sanford at last year's Dragon Con and after grabbing a copy of his beautiful sketchbook, Deadlines 2, we knew we wanted to have him on the show. His covers and interiors on Batman Strikes for the Johnny DC imprint were awesome and we started checking for Wonder Girl as soon as we heard he was the penciler.
Being influenced by guys in and out of comics, Greene's style definitely showcases his love of animation. He recently had the pleasure of finding out that animators Bruce Timm and James Tucker, of Batman and Justice League fame, are both fans of his work too.
The front end of our conversation details the funny series of events that lead to Sanford collaborating with hip-hop superstar, Method Man and writer, David Atchison on this new project. Later, we cover some of his background growing up in Charleston, SC, a few valuable lessons he's learned along the way and a hint at what his future holds.
**On this episode of the show, we played Jah Freedom's Give Up 'cause Sanford has his own theme music—just like Shaft!
